arbū created the Smart Soothing Moisturizer to address the specific needs of men’s skin.
Men need to use moisturizers for all the same reasons women do and, on top of that, men shave. Shaving can irritate the skin, which may lead to itchy and painful red bumps. Moisturizing after shaving (and not only then, of course) can soothe the skin as well as help restore its protective barrier.
“If you’ve ever weighed the merits of moisturizing your skin, wear a pair of leather shoes for a few months without conditioning them and see what happens. Over time, cracks, deep crevices, and general wear will age even that tough, tanned cowhide. Your, much less resilient, skin needs regular protection and care to keep it looking fresh. The interesting thing about skin care for men is that it often takes very little to make a big improvement,” says Kathleen M. Welsh, M.D., quoted by Men’s Health magazine.
What you need to know about the Smart Soothing Moisturizer
The Smart Soothing Moisturizer is specially developed to relieve irritation caused by shaving. Enriched with Marrubium extract, aloe vera leaf extract, hyaluronic acid and manuka essential oil. We all know how important hyaluronic acid is for the skin’s great look and health, so let’s see what the other ingredients do. As you know, the ingredients which appear first in the product labels ingredient list are those with the higher concentration, so check how amazing this Moisturizer is:
First and very important – It heals pollution damage of the skin!
People – especially in big cities – are exposed to pollution all day, every day. Even in “cleaner” countries pollution is the invisible enemy which penetrates the skin and creates problems. The surge of oxidative stress and inflammation that soon follows exposure, alters the structure of skin tissues and cells, leading to wrinkles, unwanted pigmentation or inflammation. And as we’ve all known for a long time now – inflammation in the cells may lead to cancer.
Some facts about Marrubium extract
Scientists have found that an extract derived from the plant Marrubium vulgare helps preventing and repairing air pollution damage. On the appearance side, the Marrubium plant extract makes your skin smoother, fresher and younger-looking.
An article in LifeExtension magazine quotes different human studies that show Marrubium extract is very good for human skin and produces both immediate and long-lasting positive skin effects. When 100 volunteers aged 18 to 60 topically applied Marrubium vulgare extract for 10 to 15 minutes as part of a facial mask, roughly 80% of them reported improved skin moisture and restoration of a healthy glow within just one hour!
What aloe vera leaf extract in the Smart Soothing Moisturizer does
It is common knowledge that aloe vera heals skin injuries. But modern studies also show that the gel can penetrate 3 epidermal layers of the skin and improve absorption of other botanical herbs and vitamins!
Typically, aloe vera products should contain a high quantity of aloe in the formula to be effective and you can see these high levels in the Smart Soothing Moisturizer ingredient label.
Manuka – the superfood and natural wound-healer
Given the rise in resistance to conventional antibiotics, natural products have been targeted for the development of antimicrobials with novel mechanisms of action. Manuka oil is one of the winners here! Sourced from the New Zealand plant of the same name, Manuka oil has been scientifically shown to have more antibacterial properties than even tea tree oil! The potency of its antimicrobial properties is what makes this oil such a superstar at healing all skin conditions.
It also works great on hair and nails making them smoother. So, here’s a great beauty tip: after applying your moisturizer with your fingers, massage your nails and the skin around them in order to heal invisible scratches and possible inflammation.
Also important: Manuka oil is as good for you on the inside as it is on the outside. It’s been shown to help alleviate stress and pain and soothe your mood.
A tip on how to use the Smart Soothing Moisturizer
And here is another tip: Night is an essential time to renew your skin. Adding the Moisturizer to your routine not only after morning shaving, but also before bed creates softer, more hydrated and better-looking skin the next day. It also helps seal in moisture and repairs the skin barrier that’s compromised by dry air and harsh cleansers.
And better-looking and healthier skin is all we want, isn’t it?
